Amy Schumer On ‘Howard Stern Show’: I Don’t Want Fake Celebrity Friends (AUDIO)
When Stern asked on the radio show if the comedic actress is “taking advantage of networking” with Hollywood types now that she’s a big star, Schumer insisted, “That is my worst nightmare… That’s disgusting.” The comedienne explained, “It’s just so fake. It’s people doing an impression of having a conversation.”
Schumer went on to recall meeting Beyonce at this year’s Met Gala, and admitted it was “exciting,” but also superficial. “She was like, ‘Is this your first Met Gala?’ and I was like, ‘It’s my last,'” Schumer joked, before further denouncing forced conversations between two people who are only interacting because they’re famous.
“I’m not trying to make lots of celebrity friends,” added Schumer. “The people that I care about, I gotta keep it so real with them. I can’t be like, ‘Yeah, I really like this girl. Me and Taylor Swift, we just hit it off… I’m part of that world now.'” The actress acknowledged that if she were to join a celebrity squad, her real friends would tell her to “get the f**k out of here.”
However, Schumer clarified that she is in fact “friends with a lot of people in [the entertainment industry],” but they’re all authentic relationships. The comedienne noted that her genuine famous friends include Jennifer Lawrence, Lena Dunham, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K. and Chris Rock, but despite her A-list pals, she’s deep down an “introvert” who doesn’t enjoy socializing.
